I placed an order with Amazon last week, and decided to have it delivered to my office rather than left on the front porch at home. I tracked the package on the UPS website this morning, and it shows the package as having been delivered . . . to Coatesville, PA . . . on November 16, 2006.

This is clearly a lie.

So, laughing that they gave me such an obviously wrong tracking number, I pulled up the shipping confirmation I was emailed. And I found another error. Instead of the zip code for my office, I somehow managed to enter "21032". This, it turns out, is Crownsville. Now, the rest of the address is correct, up to and including the city name, so I have hope that this package will reach me. But I sent an email to Amazon customer service just now, because this is simply TOO MANY PROBLEMS, and it's better to be safe.

At least I can be fairly certain that my package is not in Pennsylvania of a-year-and-a-half ago.

I think it will reach you, but if not...

I've found that Amazon is very, very good about sending replacement shipments, even if there was an error on your end.
